Hicks, born 1831, who owned Devon Farm and served as Adjutant Major First Battalion Tennessee Cavalry under his uncle General Felix Zollicoffer. The family land is now the site of Ensworth High School in Nashville. The Hicks family was also related to the Harding Family of Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville, just a short distance away.
